At the moment i configured bind to be a slave and just get the zone from
the ipa dns. but still i think thats not the best way to do it. since i
will also have some hosts in the zonefile that shouldn't be public.

But I think that problem isn't related to ipa. I'm really happy about ipa
right know and just playing around with it and hope that we could deploy it
live, soon.

Btw. are there any tips by having a second nameserver (public) that just
gives out the important/public hosts?
Or is there a good way in having a domain configured twice? like the
internal ip for ipa-users and the external ip for the people outside of the
internal firewall?

P.S.: I'm not that much familiar with bind9/10. I'm just learning to use it
correctly and make a good enviroment with ipa.
